US says Israel prisoner delay a 'challenge'

US Secretary of State John Kerry waves as he leaves Brussels, on April 2, 2014The United States said Thursday that Israel’s failure to agree to free a group of Palestinian prisoners was a new challenge for imperiled US peace efforts. Israel’s top negotiator Tzipi Livni told the Palestinians earlier that the release of 26 prisoners could not take place because of an attempt by the government of president Mahmud Abbas to seek international recognition, a source said. “The decision by the Israelis to delay the release of the fourth tranche of prisoners creates challenges,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. Carney said, however, that Secretary of State John Kerry and the US negotiating team would not be deterred in trying to keep the peace effort alive despite recent setbacks.
